Qatar Airways’ and British Airways’ frequent flyer partnership in full flight

British Airways partners with Qatar Air

Passengers can redeem miles on both airlines


September 9, 2013 12:26 by

Fast-growing airline Qatar Airways has announced an immediate partnership with British Airways (BA) for a shared frequent flyer programme.

The agreement allows Qatar Airways Privilege Club and BA Executive Club members to earn miles and can redeem them at both airlines from October 1.

Passengers can also use ‘Qmiles’ as a means of payment for shopping at Qatar Duty Free and Oryx Galleria in Doha, while BA members can use ‘Avios’ for flights, hotels and ‘members only’ special offers and promotions.

“The benefit of partnering with BA for our customers is the added opportunity to earn ‘Qmiles’,” says Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways’ CEO.

He adds: “Passengers of both airlines traveling to and from the UK, Africa, Australia and Asia now have more flexibility and frequency when they route trip through Doha, as Qatar Airways flies five flights daily to London Heathrow Airport.”

The Doha-based airline has seen rapid growth in just 16 years of operation and currently flies a fleet of 129 aircraft across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and The Americas. Qatar Airways was also the recipient of the Skytrax ‘Airline of the Year’ award in 2011 and 2012.

Last month, the carrier revised its standard baggage allowance, granting additional weight to all customers. Effective from September 1, economy weight allowances increased from 23kg to 30kg, while business and first class increased limits from 30kg and 40kg, to 40kg and 50kg respectively.
